The Economist has long been noted for its ability to chart political, business, scientific, technological and cultural developments and the connections between them. Because of its global editorial perspective, authority and concision it is read by more of the worlds political and business leaders than any other magazine.

The Economist Historical Archive delivers a complete searchable copy of every issue of The Economist from 1843 to latest year. Database features include full-colour images, multiple search indexes, and the facility to browse individual issues.

For a history of The Economist see The pursuit of reason: the Economist 1843-1993 by Ruth Dudley Edwards (HC 255.E39 1993 KR)
